How do I find the preview sandbox?

Sorry for the n00b question, but I've been searching all over the place with no luck.  I received this Action Required email telling me I need to test my SAML apps in the preview, and I see references all over the place to preview orgs, but I can't figure out how to get to mine.  Clicking on the Okta Preview Sandbox – Release 2016.44. link just takes me to a release notes page.  HALP!

Just figured it out... Go to https://www.okta.com/developer/signup/ and signup for a developer account.  This will create an account in the preview environment.  Once you have your account setup the preview environment will work like the production environment.  None of the apps you have setup in production will exist so you will need to setup any apps you want to test.

I've discovered that you can get to the sandbox by going to yourorg.oktapreview.com. The issue that I've now run into though is trying to figure out how to log in. My usual credentials don't work so I'm trying to see if there is something special that needs to happen to be able to log in. Hope that helps a bit.
